Lover of the sea and the mountains, surfing for more than 20 years, began with the discipline of yoga in Hawaii as a complement to this activity. Soon he felt the numerous benefits that yoga classes brought him and thanks to his travels across several continents he had the opportunity to delve deeper into the practice by attending different schools. Now he begins his journey as a professor in Astur Yoga, wishing to transmit the best of himself and what he learned during all these years.
«Surfing is essential in my life.» It is the engine that has pushed me to travel the world in search of waves that I have always wanted to surf. Yoga came as a complement to surfing, but I soon realized that I was going much further. I have been fortunate to practice and study with many teachers, among them I can quote:
Vinyasa Yoga with Collette Cameron in Hawaii
Yin Yoga with Mara J. in Hawaii.
Yoga for surfers with Nina in North Shore Yoga Coop.
Ashtanga Yoga with Jennie Lee in Massachutses.
Hatha Yoga with Alma in Barcelona.
Yoga in pairs with Cab Spates.
Ashtanga Yoga in Inlight Lagos, Portugal, with Isabel.
Training in Hatha Yoga by International Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Center
Vinyasa Yoga with Verónica, in Astur yoga
